If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I only seem to be able to get a maximum of 9 images and posts to appear on the Featured Slider on the news page. It doesn’t matter what I change the amount to when I change Number of Featured Posts in the Main News Page Option, it will only show 9 images and posts, which is not what I want. What am I missing here? (Website still on localhost, so can’t refer you to it at the moment).
Can I get some support on this? I purchased the theme because of the slider and it doesn’t seem to be working as it should. Much appreciated.
I think you might be running into an issue with too many labels that are closely named. When you change the number of Featured Posts for the Main News Page Option, you will only see those changes on the page you have designated to display the “News Overview”.
Check that the page you have designated to be your “home” page (ie the index that shows up when you view the site) is using the dynamic template “Frontpage”. If it is, you need to go to the Template Builder, select Frontpage and then expand the Blog element. Near the bottom of those options is where you will change the number of Featured Posts to display.
If this is not the case, please let me know. I checked through the rest of the instances to make sure the featured image amount was working correctly and I didn’t run into any issues.
Brilliant, Devin. That did the trick. I so appreciate your help. I was ready to give up, but everything’s back on track now. No doubt, I’ll have some more problems to resolve as I get to grips with wordpress – I’m a novice – but big thanks for the moment.
